                                                                                               Vice- Chair of Governors Beverley Garland shares her thoughts on being a Buckfastleigh School Governor. 

What is our role?

Becoming a governor is big commitment and not one to be taken lightly, but it is a very rewarding role.  Having been elected each governor undergoes formal on going training both at county and academy level, and during their first year is paired with a more experienced governor mentor who will undergo joint visits into school looking at pre decided areas linked into the School Development Plan.
We meet formally every half term to ensure that the School Development Plan is being implemented, to discuss staffing, update policies, feedback on Governor visits and to discuss future plans and developments at both school and Academy level.                                                     













Currently we have a vacancy for a Community Governor and we are very keen to recruit someone with financial expertise to further complement our experienced team of Governors.  If you know of anyone with accountancy or business experience, please do ask them to contact us via the school office.
